Quotes 2

I think the cards are excellent. The author has managed to conserve the conceptual nature of the new syllabus, which is great. I would certainly recommend them to my students.

Quotes 2

I found the videos and explanations very straightforward and easy-to-follow. If I didn’t understand a topic or an aspect of a certain video, it was great to be able to rewind and listen to/watch it again. A wonderful source for revision!

The IB flashcards are the best thing that could happen to a student. They are very easy to take around, so you can revise the material everywhere you are. Moreover, they contain questions and answers formed just like in the answer key, so you can be sure to fit in the mark schemes of your exams.

I loved how the videos break down the subject matter very simply, making the material easy for the student to absorb. (love the jokes btw, never quit! lol) P.S. I passed physics, so THANK YOU SO MUCH.
